Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

None of these can be ruled out but Marco Botti's MAREFUORI returns from a break on a lenient mark so is taken to bag a second C&D success. In-form duo Give It Up and Livinthelife can both have a say too and chase home the selection in that order.

Betting Forecast

5/1 Etretat, 5/1 Give It Up, 11/2 Marefuori (Ire), 13/2 Caelan (Ire), 10/3 Livinthelife (Ire), 9/2 Brodie's Boy (Fr)
